Not true. mpgxsvcd provided evidence that refuted rtings' original claim of no 4:4:4 support
. rtings then responded and said that while it's not quite as clear as a true 4:4:4 picture, "It only matters if you will be using it as a PC monitor, 2-3 feet away."
I use my M70 with my PC from 10.5' away and it looks fantastic. Vizio and Sony are the only two manufacturers that put out TVs that can do [email protected]
, and apparently Sony TVs have "white dashes" in that mode.

I use my PC on HDMI5 for the low lag (don't care about HDR). The only thing I do differently with the picture from my normal viewing is turn GLL on.
As stated above, I prefer [email protected]
I don't notice momentary frame drops below 120 (whereas I do below 60) and my 1070 should be able to handle anything I throw at it on max settings for quite a while. GPU's just aren't there for 4k gaming yet IMO, not to mention I can't tell the difference at that distance anyway.
If you're dead set on gaming at 4k, use HDMI1 as that is the only other port on the M that supports [email protected]
It also gives you the option to play in HDR for games that support it.

What can i do to get some testing done to see how my panel checks out?
Switch to any other HDMI input with an active signal and it'll work fine.

Dude, thank you so much!!! All I need to do is bring my receipt to the warehouse and this deal gets even better!
